after suspend/sleep problem, USB drives won't mount?

Postby TomRoche on Sun May 06, 2012 7:24 pm

After upgrading UP3->UP4 (i.e., upgrading to the 3.2 kernel) I'm noticing the following problem with one of my laptops. Previously, I had no problem suspending to memory (aka sleeping) the box. Now I'm noticing that

  1. After a restart, the first few sleeps occur normally: screen goes black with no messages, disk stops, power LED goes from fully-on to strobe.
  2. Eventually, I will try to sleep, and the screen will go black but I will briefly see (too fast to read) some messages in white text (more here about that) flash on the screen before the box sleeps.
  3. After that,
    • Every time I sleep, I will see flashing messages.
    • After I resume, I will be unable to mount USB drives: the box simply will not recognize any!

How to fix or debug? Currently the only workaround I've found is to restart, which annoys :-(
